Last Saturday evening in the Aotea Centre our team won the Grand Final of the inter-secondary Slam Poetry competition called WORD THE FRONT LINE.  This is an outstanding achievement not only because it was the first time that Selwyn had participated in this competition but also, because the team had to work their way through several heats, competing against a large number of schools.  The evening consisted of electrifying   poetry, truth and some stunning performances from the six finalist schools over three rounds. In the end, the Selwyn team were declared the winners!
